I just picked up a book called "Doing Art Together" by Muriel
Silberstein-Storfer. She wrote this book after having taught the
Metropolitan Museum of Art's parent-child workshop. It has some interesting
thoughts on teaching preschoolers through adults and has lesson plan ideas.
It might be a good resource.
I'm an unemployed art teacher in the San Diego area. Currently I am working
as a substitute teacher in the Poway and San Diegito school districts, (not
totally unemployed.) The other day, a junior high art teacher called me and
asked if I was interested in giving private lessons. Well, the conversation
sparked my creative spirit and I'm ready to go. I am going to attempt to
put together an after school program for students in the first through
eighth grades. My problem is this, I have never done this before and most
of my experience is with high school age children. I have a lot of ideas
and inspirations, but little else. I would appreciate any advice, direction
or information that you all could give me. Have any of you ever done this
before, and if so what is the good, the bad, and the ugly?
Thanks so much.
